Frankfurt School of Finance & Management

Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is a leading private business school based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. We have 86 regional education centres throughout Germany and various joint ventures and programmes abroad.



Founded in 1957 as Bankakademie.


We offer top class degree courses and continuing education options in seven different programme divisions. We maintain four specialist research centres and run numerous international consulting projects. All educational, research and consulting activities are focused on finance and management.

By finance, we mean crossfunctional financial activities at all companies that deal with financial management. And by management, we mean classical corporate leadership, where managers deploy employees and resources in such a way that the company’s goals are met as cost-effectively as possible.


Frankfurt School of Finance & Management features one of Germany’s largest business administration faculties. Its professors work hand in hand with policy-makers and executives to offer tailor-made solutions to topical questions.

Research findings from the five departments are employed in leading corporations, the finance sector, in politics, and on development issues. Members of our faculty frequently comment on topical issues in all media.


At Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, Career Services represent a gateway between the business school’s academic activities and entry into the jobs market.

Working closely with students and businesses, our Career Services team provides the platforms and access pathways that keep information flowing smoothly between Frankfurt School, our students and alumni, and existing or prospective employers. The result is a virtuous circle that benefits all parties involved.
